Privilege Escalation: How Hackers Get Elevated Permissions

About this webinar

Recorded: June 20, 2018

During this webcast, you will discover: 

  • Top methods that attackers use to escalate their privileges 
  • How to defend against these techniques 
  • How you can quickly identify and investigate privilege escalation

Pro Tips for Defending Your Organization from Data Breaches

Data security analyst Bob Diachenko (@MayhemDayOne) will join us in this webinar to share his expert tips for reducing your risk of a data breach. To discover data leaks and vulnerabilities on the internet, Bob uses search engines like Shodan, BinaryEdge and Zoomeye, and simple dorks. No special software or active scanning, just 'bare hands' and some luck. If he can find your data, then anybody else in the world can, too.

Bob will provide some great insights based on recent data breaches in unsecured NoSQL databases caused by trusted staff and partners, including:

  • Which of your data assets are likely to be targeted by attackers
  • A checklist for minimizing the risk of a data breach
  • How to spot and remediate risks while adopting a cloud-first strategy
  • How to minimize the exposure of your sensitive data
